What a blower!

Just got my new Redmax blower:blob3: from captdevo. Fired it up and played with it around my yard and all I can say is Wow!

Anyone just starting in this business or in the market for a new blower should definetly buy this one. Man has it got some power.

What type was it? I use all Echo 2-cycle equipment, but I am always open to suggestions.

Since its a little more powerful than my 7000, you should have lots of fun with it!

I got one too from Devo.

I got one as well from Devo about 2 weeks ago. It is A+ material and blows like nothing I've ever seen or used.. Incredible..

no question is stupid..

with ebay, you have a chance at getting them at a great price, but people often wait till the last minute to bid...ya never know.

then there is shipping to add on.

call or email orders offer a great price w/shipping.

and no waiting till auction ends....

Hi jsr2741,

I got one first of this week from my local RedMax dealer. My first back pack blower and your right it beats anything I have used in the past short of something on wheels,

I bought a new mower from him about 2 months ago so he gave me a super deal on the blower I just couldnt turn down

Yep, Redmax 7001rh, about blew the grass out of the ground. I tried the echo 650 and Redmax 7000 and compared to my sthil bg 85 I thought I had hold of a cyclone but I resisted and decided to wait. However my dealer told me that the Redmax distributor didn't even have a pricing sheet available yet.

So after reading some more post I decided to e-mail captdevo. After a few days I called him and shot the bull for about 20 minutes; this guy knows his stuff, next thing I know I've got the 7001 on order (would of got to use it thurs & friday but ups delivered it to the wrong street).

Anyone who is thinking of getting into this biz but is limited on the money they can spend, all I can say is spend the extra money to get the quality equipment. As long as you do quality work your equipment will be paid off in no time.

Thanks to captdevo and the rest of you guys who post very informative information.
